2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car for the combination of practical features- safe, good fuel economy, AWD, decent performance, reliability. Overall, I like it, but I'm not sure if I'd do it all over again. I'm 6'2" and find the car to be extremely uncomfortable on longer trips. It's also a tight squeeze as a family car- if you have child seats, they don't fit easily. It's also not an easy drive in heavy traffic- I have a manual trans. and the shifting is kind of a pain compared to other manuals I've driven. I'd go with an automatic over a manual if I were buying again. The few flaws aside, it's a fun car to drive for the money.
